Are you afraid that self-acceptance means you'll never lose weight?
Does self-acceptance mean giving up?
As magnificent Mara beautifully put it today, it's all about…
Self-love and the desire to change.
Digging yourself utterly + completely and wishing for a little more out of your life.
I've puzzled over this topic many times these past couple of years. There's a desire to feel at peace with myself and my body, but at the same time there's things I want to change. Is this possible? Am I really a nutty dieter hiding in self-acceptance clothing? Am I some sorta self-acceptance sell-out if I want to lose some pounds? Am I throwing in the towel if I don't change a thing? Can't I have a foot in both camps? And what the heck does self-acceptance mean anyway?

- What questions do YOU have about self-acceptance?
- What has always irked you about conversations about self-love?
- What feels too good to be true, and what do you need clarified?
- How might you need to be better supported in order to be your best, most loving self?
- What do you really wish people said out loud on the topic of self-acceptance?
In the meantime I'll be obsessively tweaking my Carry On Only packing list to avoid the lost luggage shennanigans of 2011. Also will make sure not to pack salad lest the Sniffer Beagle busts me again!
